Before They’re Purged: A Shopping List

Like Enoch Powell, “As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding.” Overnight, symbols of white heritage are disappearing, whether by mob violence, administrative edict, or the votes of Republican legislatures. Every day, there is fresh news about a product being renamed, a thought criminal deplatformed, or a once defiant man bowing to ethnomasochism. Debates about flags and statues used to go on for years. Now, “controversial” emblems and monuments are dumped over a weekend.

My recommendation is to start buying non-digital copies of politically incorrect books and movies now. Digital copies may well disappear in the coming years, and publishers and distributors might soon be afraid to keep controversial titles in circulation. Here are a few suggestions.

Birth of a Nation (1915) — The notoriety of this classic film makes it a prime candidate for getting yanked from the shelves sometime soon.

The Griffith Masterworks box set — A massive collection of D.W. Griffith’s films, including Birth of a Nation and dozens of his excellent, but largely overlooked, short films.

John Wayne films — His oeuvre consists almost entirely of pro-American war films and pro-settler Westerns. If the airport named for him is rechristened, the activists are likely to push further and go after vendors who sell his movies. Two of his finest films are Stagecoach (1939) and The Searchers (1956). But it is also very easy (for now!) to find large boxed sets of his movies. See for example here, here, and here.

The Dispossessed Majority by Wilmot Robertson — An extremely valuable racialist text, it has been out of print for some time, and used book stores are going to stop carrying it for fear of boycotts. For now, I recommend searching for it on

Paul Gottfried’s “Marxism Trilogy” — The trio being: After Liberalism: Mass Democracy in the Managerial StateMulticulturalism and the Politics of Guilt – Toward a Secular Theocracy, and The Strange Death of Marxism: The European Left in the New Millennium. All three were published by university presses, making them susceptible to politically correct pressure. I find them the most incisive examination of the contemporary Left ever written, especially Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt. Again, I recommend

This list could be much longer, but I have listed only those works of exceptional value that I think are most likely to be “canceled.” Please list more books and movies in the comments.
